SGAC ha sido crucial para allanar el camino para la nueva generación – An interview with Victoria Alonsoperez
Me encantó mi tiempo en SGAC, creo que fue una gran experiencia para mí. Comencé como Punto Nacional de Contacto de Uruguay, luego fui Coordinadora Regional para América del Sur, luego co-chair y luego miembro asesor, por lo que ha sido excelente. Para mí, SGAC ha sido una organización que me abrió tantas puertas. Recuerdo la primera vez que conocí SGAC, fue en 2009, cuando obtuve la beca para jóven de la IAF, que ahora se conoce como el Emerging Space Leader Award, así que obtuve la beca y pude ir a Corea del Sur, parte de la beca era ser parte del Space Generation Congress, del que nunca escuché en mi vida, pero desde el segundo que llegué a SGAC fue como un sueño hecho realidad.
